Vipre catches it as potentially unwanted. Something is slowing my bandwidth down quite a lot. Bud reports the same. I'm going to remove it and see what happens
Causes my computer to crash, got many blue screens since I installed it and after I removed it they were gone

Best practices for resolving OctoshapeClient issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with OctoshapeClient. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using cleanmgr and sfc /scannow, uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using msconfig) and enabling Windows' Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off doing a repair of your installation, or in the case of Windows 8, executing the DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command. This allows you to repair the operating system without losing data.
